The NV-G series are built on the tried, tested and trusted NV 5/6 through NV Monster frames, and feature the patented and award winning NV CCF Disc Braking System.
The G-Spool designs transform your NV reels into u ber-arbor fly reels that pick up line faster than any other comparable reel in the market. The G-Spool (Giga Spool) design reduces the reel weight significantly and generates less line coiling and much faster line retrieval (up to 15 inches per turn on the G-10)!
The unique CNC machining on these reels gives the impression that the backing is floating above the arbor, creating significant air space under the backing which promotes faster backing drying. Wet backing is the leading cause of corrosion in fly reels, and the G-Spool design dries 14 times faster than traditional designs.
First introduced in 2006, the NV CCF is a stronger, lighter version of the CCF brake. It sports a larger drag, hybrid ceramic bearings, and a titanium drag shaft while delivering the same less than 1% startup inertia as the CCF disc brake. Even at twice the drag surface, this brake unit weighs almost half of that in the CCF line of reels, allowing the NV line to deliver true big game reels that weigh less than many trout reels. The Brembo® brakes of fly fishing reels.
The hooker comes standard in all NV models but can be fit onto any CCF-X2 or FWX reel. It consists of a red anodized 6061 series aluminum button that’s machined to screw into the back of the reel seat. No more leader slipping in between the frame and the spool! Wrap your line around the HookerTM, and move to the next pool or flat. Only Nautilus Reels!
The Nautilus ActivSealTM is a precision machined proprietary seal that’s featured in all our CCF-X2 and NV series reels. The ActivSeal actively repels water, sand, salt and any other contaminant to keep the braking system intact and consistent. Whether great lakes steelheading in 20-degree weather or on a Seychelles flat in 100-degree tropical torture, ActivSeal technology keeps your reel functioning at the highest level, despite the elements. Dunk it and batter it with sand, then go back to fishing. Only Nautilus Reels!
A favorite technology to come out of the Nautilus think-tank, we laser etch a white spot to the inside of the spool, leaving a textured surface that can be written on. Anglers can then use a thin permanent marker to write the line weight or any other information you need. No more washed out or peeled of line stickers! If you ever need to change it, wipe it off with alcohol for a blank slate.
The Über arbors of fly fishing reels that allow anglers to reel in more than a foot per turn. In addition, a unique design feature of these spools comes in grooves that let the bottom of the backing breathe to promote faster drying. The Giga arbors have redefined large arbor reel design.
